Seabird Entanglement Working Group

The Sanctuary Advisory Council (AC) voted in support of creating a ‘Seabird Entanglement Subcommittee’ at the August 2019 meeting. The aim of this group is to help support our shared goals of:

  1. Reducing pelican and other seabird injuries and deaths caused by human activities: shoreline, wharf and boat fishing;
  2. Benchmark current efforts to minimize, educate and mitigate similar problems world-wide
  3. Enable people to fish without entangling or killing seabirds
